ARROW

The cast of "Arrow" hit Fan Expo 2012 this weekend answering fan questions about the upcoming show.

"The idea is … the moment we start the series is the moment after my climactic experience on the island," said series star Stephen Amell. "Until that moment, we go back to the island in a linear way. It doesn't always relate to what's happening to me in the present a la 'Lost,' but that will happen along the way."

Comic Book Movie has posted a fifteen minute clip of the panel if you'd like to check out the actual experience.

Premieres October 10 on the CW

A day later, Alba followed up the picture with another, captioned "What a way to start the day -- training for a movie is sorta fun."
